Among the objectives of Leonardo, head of the technical area of Paris Saint-Germain, there is also that of retaining the best players, with whom he is discussing a contract renewal. Among them, there are also Di Maria and Neymar.
He said: "Let's stay calm, we're talking about it. I'm 32, Neymar is much younger and therefore it's easier to discuss it with him but we're doing it. In Paris I'm happy and I'd like to continue here," concluded the Argentine.
A further indication of Lionel Messi's transfer to PSG was provided by Angel Di Maria who on Wednesday evening after the victory of Paris against Nimes expressed himself on the possibility that his international team mate will join him in France.
He said: "Let's hope, I think we there are many possibilities but we have to stay calm. Let's think about ourselves first and then see what happens. " Something about it was also asked to Mauricio Pochettino, who instead preferred not to answer directly.
Kylian Mbappé among PSG, Real Madrid and Liverpool
The Frenchman Kylian Mbappé could renew his contract with his country's capital club PSG. The club hopes to persuade him to stay. The world champion evaluates every prospect because if he signs, he said, it's to stay in Paris for a long time.
Him maybe with Neymar, and maybe with Lionel Messi. For days the French media have criticized him for dribbling and useless plays, complaints towards his teammates who did not pass the ball well. The 22-year-old responded with brace and assists in a 4-0 win against Montpellie.
Mabppé said: "The criticisms were right because I didn't live up to expectations. I discuss with the club to identify the project. I'm thinking because if I sign it is to invest in the long term with the PSG.
I am very happy here, I always have been. The club and the fans have always supported me and I will always be grateful to them. But I have to reflect on what I want to do in the coming years and where. I'll have to make a decision soon.
I don't want to buy time, if I already had it I would communicate it. I don't want to sign a contract and leave the following year because I didn't really want to sign. If I sign it is to stay. And all this deserves reflection."
The Frenchman may alternatively consider the possibility of becoming the star of Real Madrid, the most prestigious club in the world, where he would perhaps collect the legacy of the teenage idol CR7, under the orders of the other childhood idol Zidane.
The Parisian already speaks perfect Spanish, but also English which would facilitate his settling into the Premier League where Liverpool, another historic club run by the charismatic Klopp, has already taken a few steps towards him.
